#Gmail canned responses can be somehow limited. That’s why that maybe the better alternative is Email #Autoresponder for Gmail, a new Google add-on that works like Canned Responses but without such limitations

#Google
If you are bored of typing the same kind of responses again and again, get email responder for Gmail. Better than Canned Response, supports attachments and works on mobile too.

Irony:

When someone purchases products like computers, cell phones, internet access, televisions, radios 

And then bitches and moans that they are being robbed by the wealthy. 

So stop buying their products!

This is a direct copy from a facebook post I made. The topic came up here - so I thought I'd share it. 


Cooperatives vs socialism.

So in some around about manner I won't get into I was asked today how I can say socialism is anti-american, while at the same time saying I support cooperative efforts and believe they are pro-capitalism and pro republic.

First of all let me explain that despite everything promoted by cooperatives, they are not a democratic entity. They are a small corporate republic. Whats the difference? In a democracy the majority rules, in a republic it takes 2/3 majority. In a democracy you elect people to make decisions for you that are supposed to be in your best interest. In a republic you elect people that represent you and make decisions based on the popular opinion of those they represent.

So a cooperative is not based on democracy but rather a republic.

Thats a rather important difference, as it means the majority never decide for the minority in a cooperative.

Now before I get into the topic of socialism let me say practically I don't know of anyone who believes in Marxist socialism, so I don't much want to get into that topic. Rather I will discuss the difference in cooperatives and capitalistic socialism - which is the current form of socialism that is popular in america.

Capitalistic socialism is the practice of an entity, generally a government, controlling the base needs of the people. They control the food, water, gas, electric, housing, etc. They deliver an equal amount to all people, and then using methods of capitalism people can increase their base needs and wants.

The problem with this is I am a firm believer in freedom. This type of socialism, requires that those with more give more so that those with less can have. In other words, the working class must support the non-working class. The reason the working class work and the non-working class doesn't is irrelevant to this topic. The fact is for this system to work, you must take from some to give to others. Taking from someone when they don't want to give is called stealing. Forcing people to work only to take the fruits of their labor and equally redistribute it to everyone - is wrong. Forcing anyone to do anything is wrong. Its slavery.

So for socialism to work, those who do not agree with the system are made slaves of the system and they are robbed by the system. This is anti-freedom. This is anti-american.

So how is a cooperative different? A cooperative is not run by a government. It doesn't rob from anyone to give to anyone. Rather the way a cooperative works is simple. You are free to join the cooperative, follow its laws, and benefit from the cooperative, or you are free to not join the cooperative, not follow its laws, and not benefit from it.

So, with socialism it goes like this. 1000 people live in a nation. 900 of them are well off enough to feed themselves, 100 of them are not. So take from the 900 and equally distribute food to all 1000.

With a cooperative it goes like this. 1000 people live in a nation. 900 of them are well off enough to feed themselves. The other 100 get together and pool their resources and start a community garden. 20 of the guys chipped in money, 30 of the guys donated time to tending to the land and planting things, another 50 came back and harvested. All 100 of them that chipped in, get to reap the rewards of their cooperative. The other 900 have not been robbed from or made slaves to a system.

And in some round about brief summery, this is why I support cooperative efforts but am anti-socialism.
